    Awesome.

    I'm not sure I'd trust a drag radial in a full mile event unless someone had done it successfully multiple times before. I wouldn't hesitate to use them in a 1/2 mile event though.

    Some money errors?

    The reason why some people are so upset is because at the surface level, it looks like a repeat of what happened with the VCA. Prove to us this is not the VCA all over again.

    Date: September 9, 2021
    Location: Kil-Kare Dragway (Dayton, OH)

    Baller.

    Random tip: my MCS shocks can be hard to install when the canisters are pressurized. You can release the pressure to help with this, but of course, you need to have the right equipment to...

    Yeah, there's all sorts of conflicting info out there on gear ratios, rev limits, etc. For the gear ratio side, you really need the tooth count, which can be hard to come by.

    For drag racing, keep...

    This pretty much sums up my view of the situation. The part I bolded should be the club's focus IMO (attracting partners to keep our cars alive).

    The stock PCM is going to be a limitation for pretty much everything you are looking at doing, especially the forced induction options. I would NEVER run the stock PCM with either turbos or a...

    The only issue I had was over-seating a rivnut - it applied enough force to deform the threads, so I had to remove it and try again.

    Not sure, probably doesn't matter. I think we are both in agreement that the board (whoever they are) is out of touch with reality.

    I guess I'm not seeing the connection. Do you think a substantial portion of that population would be willing to pay money to continue doing what they are already doing for free?

    Battery tray looks the same as what's on mine. Hold down is definitely the same. If the nut/bolt holding it in place isn't doing its job, that'll need to be addressed. Not sure if the whole tray...

    It's going to depend on which rivnuts you are using. For the 1/4"-20 rivnuts I used, they called for a fractional drill bit (but I don't currently remember the exact size).
